    Bug inventory

    What is a good and fairly easy method to inventory the types of bugs in a lake? Is it something like wading into the weeds and sweeping a fine net through them, or scratching up the gravel bottom and scooping a net through that? I've found a lake that looks like it's not fished much at all...

    Bug Identification: A variety of May Fly

    Sorry it's sideways, but can anybody identify this particular mayfly? Purely for purposes of curiosity, I don't have trouble imitating these guys but I run into them all the time in the alpine lakes. This photo was taken mid day, in mid July, maybe in the upper 60s or low 70s if my memory serves.

    What bug is this?

    So the last day of my annual yak camp/fish trip i was on my own, no one to shuttle me. I decided I needed a exersize, so a nice 2 mile walk between big Horn and Rosa would be perfect. So glad I did. Saw two things that faster modes of transport would not allow. First, there are many fishy...

    Bug ID

    Ran into this guy the other day and believe it to be a Horntail Wasp? I've never seen one before. If that is the right bug, they are supposedly harmless. Tell that to the contractor that was here when it buzzed and cast a shadow over them :eek:. It was about 1-1/2 inches long.

    SBS Wike's Big R Bug

    Trip Report Kamloops-Take Bug Spray

    Another 10 days in Kamloops fished. Well actually 9 since I had to leave to come home early to take care of a problem. Fishing was actually different for me this year. Last year the numbers on my lake were outstanding for me. This year it was different in that the total number of fish was lower...

    Found this guy on a river rock. Wondering if it is related to a pill bug.

    Identify this bug nymph (caddisfly?)

    Went 3wt fishing on one of the little cascade creek and saw a TON of these pine needle covered caddis nymphs walking around in the side pools. I've fished this creek a lot and have never noticed them before. What are they?
